Waimea Canyon & Wailua River Tour

A memorable excursion to the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific'; Discover the brilliant colors of this natural phenomenon before an enjoyable trip along the Wailua River to visit to the Fern Grotto. Enjoy a day filled with the beauty, legends and stories of Kauai.

On this Kauai tour you will enjoy a day filled with the lush beauty, legends and saga of Hawaii's "Garden Isle." Journey to the majestic Waimea Canyon which Mark Twain called, "the Grand Canyon of the Pacific".

Over 10 miles long, and almost 4,000 feet deep this marvel was formed by erosion and the catastrophic collapse of the volcano that created Kauai. Waimea Canyon State Park encompasses 1,866 acres and is a popular tourist attraction on the island. It provides a wilderness area with numerous hiking trails while the drive along Route 580 provides gorgeous views of the Wailua River.

As you cruise along the southern coast, you'll drive through Poipu, a resort getaway for those in the know and home of the Spouting Horn. This natural wonder occurs when water rushes under a lava shelf and bursts through a small opening at the surface, making an eerie hissing noise.

Afterwards, head back toward the Wailua River for your cruise - the only river boat trip in all of Hawaii! You will explore this historic and sacred river on a long, flat-bottom boat.
